Cabinet Oven, EB 26

The EB 26 ageing cabinet has high air speed and a fixed air exchange rate of 7 or 14 changes per hour, which meets the requirements in ISO 188 method B. This oven also has a carousel for simple and fast mounting of the samples. The carousel – which rotates during ageing – has room for up to 36 samples.

EB 26 is a cabinet ageing oven for precision ageing of rubber and plastics under controlled conditions. It is supplied in one size, with 50 litres useful volume. The settings are done on the PLC colour touch screen.

In addition to the carousel the EB 26 cabinet oven is also equipped with:

  • a window in the door
  • lighting inside the chamber
  • a door sensor that turns off the fan, heating and carousel when the door opens.

Elastocon’s cabinet ageing ovens have excellent temperature stability and distribution achieved by using an inner chamber with a controlled air flow. The temperature accuracy is very important for heat ageing tests, as a 1 °C error in temperature corresponds to around 10 % error in test time.

Two temperature sensors are used, one for temperature control and one for measuring the temperature close to the samples. This sensor can also be connected to a logging software.

Note: For the best performance of the instrument, we recommend a placement in an environment with a stable temperature between +10 to +30 °C.

Standards

The oven performs well inside the apparatus requirements in ISO 188 method B and other equivalent standards.
